Our superb quality ceiling fans are perfect for use in bedrooms. The airflow generated by our timber paddle fans is ideal for keeping you cool on hot nights. They also discourage mosquitoes and miggies – see the article below:

“Studies have found that wind is an effective method against mosquitoes and other airborne pests. The reason seems obvious: it prevents them from circling and landing on you, like a windstorm keeping a plane from its descent. But that is not entirely the case. A ceiling fan dilutes and disperses the carbon dioxide you exhale. Carbon dioxide is one of the major chemicals that attract mosquitoes. The wind from a fan also cools you off. Sweat, lactic acid and body heat attract mosquitoes – factors that a ceiling fan can help minimize.” by Anahad O’Connor, Science Times.

A 1.4m paddle fan is great for use in bedrooms up to 5 x 5m and they work well in larger rooms too if installed directly over the bed. If the bedroom is larger than 5 x 5m you could consider using a 1.6m fan. Set the fan speed controller to 1 or 2 for a comfortable sleep.
